this restaurants description and the comments following remind me why I am a feminist. You would think these girls were sexual entertainers based on the way people feel entitled to dissect and disrespect them, not to mention the many jabs at their intelligence. I wish Quinton's would at least amend their own description to give a little more respect to their waitstaff. I do enjoy the food and have found the staff friendly.
This is in response to Sakuraba's comment:
I'm assuming from your ridiculous (this time spelled correctly) and ignorant comment about your horrible experience from Quinton's is that you've never been a waitress there. Well, let me sum up how the Quinton's waitresses staff works: we work as a team. So, when a customer has some money laying out on his table, no matter if it is our table or not, for the sake of time, we will help out the other waitresses by picking it up for them. In your case, it was not for the entire bill, but the change left over; however, when a waitress is walking by, it is not unfathomable that she will not count out the money before she picks it up, especially if it is not her customer (that is rude).
So, if the original waitress did receive the change from your table that the other waitress picked up for her, then she most likely assumed that it was her tip. Unfortunately, the customer was you, who instead of speaking up at the time, decided to glare and allow the waitress to take your money, and then go back to your office and bash on them.
If you're still "in shock," let me sum it up for you: if you feel like we "treat you like a stale bread bowl," then take your lame criticisms somewhere else to eat by yourself.
Limited menu, good food, great service, nice drink specials. Clean, ample room for lunch, dinner. Family friendly early. Crowd is mostly obnoxious, style-bankrupt, cookie-cutter frat types later. Deal with it, though, you're in a Kansas college town.
The most rediculous thing just happened to me at Quinton's today.
I was eating a lack luster and overcooked Mangino sandwich in the near empty front room and wanted to pay early so I could get back to work. When the waitress (who was nice up to that point) brought my money back, I let it sit on the table while I finished eating.
Just then another 98 pound waitress came up to the table and removed my change. She obviously wanted to make it look like she was just picking up the tip, but it was obvious that this was her prefered method of taking all the change before the tip was decided.
I glared at the waitress after she walked away, but she just pretended not to see me.
After I finished my sandwich, I walked up and asked for the change back. And she said, "Oh, I guessed I picked it up a little early."
Yeah, ya think. That's why they call it "leaving" a tip. Have you ever in your time here on God's green earth had a waitress pick up the tip before you had finished eating. The answer is no, you have not, unless you have eaten at Quinton's lately.
I then decided to call Quinton's upon my return to the office and speak to a manager about the incident, but a waitress told me that he just stepped out and with panic in her voice asked what it was in regards to.
I told her that it was nothing and that I would call back later, but she informed me that he probably wouldn't be back today.
I'm still in shock that this actually happened. I guess when you only hire stuck up, 98 pound rich girls to shake it for their tips, they just assume they can treat the customers like a stale bread bowl (which hasn't ever stoped them from serving soup in one).
If you want my advice, save your seven dollars and overcook a crappy, soggy sandwich yourself in the microwave. You might want to pick up seven or eight Poor Brother's potato chips to round it out though. Then you can almost completely recreate the Quinton's experience.
But your going to have to go out and find some overly tanned, emaciated co-ed to steal $2.75 from you if you want the full package.
To Missmagoo and those who like to bash Quinton's waitresses as Hooters girls, Barbies, dumb as rocks, etc: It is evident from your choice of words in describing the servers that you are merely jealous of something that you aren't and wish you could be. Coming from one of the "Barbies" who have to work to support themselves while going to school full-time (as is every other waitress there), I hope you realize that we can spot your types in a second, and we hope that someday you will find something better to do with your free time than bash those who are better than you (and consequently better looking).
The food is excellent! I LOVE their sandwiches and bread bowls. The place is usually packed around the noon hour and will have to agree about the hooters comment--the wait staff is good looking but sometimes dumb as rocks. Just be prepared to have Barbie wait on you but the food will be worth it.
Still like this place for a sandwich, but its become The Hawk @ night. Young, 18 something punks running around bumping into people in the overcrowded bar.
ahhhh quintons, the memories i had, the braincells i lost, the girls i used. if it wasn't for you i wouldn't be half the man i am today.
Everyday for four years. This play supplies some of the best hooo hooo in town. Don't kid yourself. You don't even know how we roll. How many bottles of Cris did you pop in there?' Bottom line rookies, you don't even know how good you got it at Quintons Downtown. Always a girl to bang at this spot. Go get yourself soco lime. No two bartenders will cahrge the same thing to anyone. Show an ounce of cool and maybe they'll take care of you. All those suffering from lack there of will have to pay double so I can get one for free. Easy on those stairs kitty cat if you fall everyone will laugh. Hey frat boy, you're not cool. Die or something.
One of my favorites in Lawrence! The soup (the cheese soup and the potato soup rock!) and sandwiches are outstanding! It's great for a nice casual and inexpensive meal. And although at times I feel like I've accidently wandered into a Hooters when I look at the waitresses, they are in fact very friendly and provide great service!
Let's face it, the first guy was right. This place wouldn't still be open if the manager didn't ingeniously hire hot women to serve the sandwiches. Not that the ladies are not hot and friendly. And the food is decent. I still miss big Joe behind the bar though. If the management is listening, bring back the best bartender that place has ever had. I don't care how much you have to pay him.
The sandwiches and the soup in the bread bowls are to DIE for! My favourite is a Reuben with Brocolli soup. I have enountered some of the NICEST wait staff at Quintons!
